About Our Troop
Troop 176 has been active since 1921. We meet weekly on Wednesday evenings and have lots of activities throughout the
During the past year, we have been backpacking along the Appalachian trail, taken a bike/camping trip to Evansburgh State Park,
skied at Shawnee Mountain, have been whitewater rafting on the Lehigh River, and had a great week at Resica Falls Summer Camp.
Troop 176 is a great group. We look out for each other, and everyone else. We learn about knots, camping, other survival skills,
and the importance of community service. The camping trips are really fun.
Our Troop's first aid team won the council first aid competition for 2013.
During the summer of 2014, 20 of our scouts and leaders spent ten days in the mountains of New Mexico at Philmont Scout Reservation.
We are particularly proud of the 30 Scouts from Troop 176 who have achieved the rank of Eagle since 2000.
Congratulations to Matt, Ian, Thain, Steven, Marshall, and Maxwell, our latest Eagle Scouts.
